Brainstorm Multimedia, leading manufacturer of real-time 3D graphics and virtual set solutions, is pleased to announce at NAB 2014 entrance into the NewTek Developer Network and the integration of a number of Brainstom on-air graphics and virtual studio applications with NewTek TriCaster™ multi-camera video production systems. Such integration will provide NewTek’s clients with access to Brainstorm’s world renowned applications and solutions, allowing users to benefit from the creativity, functionality and added value that Brainstorm’s products offer.
Launched and shipping at NAB 2014, Brainstorm’s implementation of the AirSend API is the first integration between a wide range of Brainstorm’s products and TriCaster. The high quality and sophisticated content produced by Brainstorm Aston 3D graphics creation, CG and playout application can be streamed live over an IP connection to TriCaster for inclusion in and to enhance program material.
Additional integration applications will be rolled out to allow access to content and control of Brainstorm products direct from the TriCaster’s user interface. This will bring further efficiencies and flexibility to NewTek users, as well as simplify and speed up the production process while adding visually impressive creative content to enhance the finished result. A CG connectivity application of this type for integration between the Aston 3D and TriCaster, will be available shortly after NAB and followed by a similar application for Brainstorm’s Infinity Set which is a totally new and revolutionary approach to virtual set production, also being launched at NAB.
According to Ricardo Montesa, CEO of Brainstorm, “Brainstorm strongly believes in the collaboration with other companies to create synergies that can only benefit our mutual customers. We are delighted to work with NewTek, a company which has proven to have an excellent vision on how to develop the broadcast market.
